Cyber attack hits 200000 in at least 150 countries: Europol

Cyber attack hits 200000 in at least 150 countries: Europol

Europol, the European law enforcement agency, said on Saturday the attack was on an "unprecedented level".

Brazil's state-owned oil company Petrobras and Brazil's Foreign Ministry also are affected, and both have disconnected computers as precautionary measure.

A company spokesperson declined to confirm media reports that production at the plant, which employs 7,000, had been halted.

"The latest count is over 200,000 victims in at least 150 countries, and those victims, many of those will be businesses, including large corporations", he said.

Russia's interior ministry said 1000 of its computers had been infected but the virus was swiftly dealt with and no sensitive data was compromised.

Some experts said the threat had receded for now, in part because a British-based researcher, who declined to give his name, registered a domain that he noticed the malware was trying to connect to, limiting the worm's spread.

Getzlaf concurred with Carlyle's assessment of the difference in the game and was more specific about which facet proved decisive. Getzlaf made it 3-0 as he collected a turnover by Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse and quickly deposited into the net.

The most disruptive attacks were reported in Britain, where hospitals and clinics were forced to turn away patients after losing access to computers.

Britain is spending around £50m on improving the security of the National Health Service's computer systems and had warned the NHS it faced cyber threats, defence minister Michael Fallon said.

He said Europol and other agencies did not yet know who was behind the attack but "normally it is criminally minded and that is our first working theory for obvious reasons". Radio Slovenia said Saturday the Revoz factory in the southeastern town of Novo Mesto stopped working Friday evening to stop the malware from spreading.

An worldwide effort is under way to track down the criminals behind an unprecedented global cyber attack that wreaked havoc across the NHS.

But he also said he's concerned the authors of the malware could re-release it without a kill switch or with a better one, or that copycats could mimic the attack.

EC3 is "is specially created to assist in such investigations and will play an important role in supporting the investigation", the statement added.

In Germany, the federal railway operator said electronic boards had been disrupted.

"My registration... caused all infections globally to believe they were inside a [virtual machine] and exit... thus we initially unintentionally prevented the spread and further ransoming of computers".

Deutsche Bahn says that departure and arrival display screens at its stations were hit Friday night by the attack.

Citing a written statement by BTK, Turkey's official Anadolu news agency said the cyberattack affected 74 countries, "including Turkey in a small way".

The U.K. government emergency Cobra committee met on Saturday afternoon to discuss the attack. Several cybersecurity firms said they had identified the malicious software behind the attack, which has apparently hit Russian Federation the hardest.
